Hello Lamy fans,

 

Just found a local source that has limited stock of Safari Apple Green ($70), Safari Neon Yellow ($60) and Al-Star black ($120).

 

They had some Silvergreen and Pearl Al-Stars when I arrived there today, but I guy took them all just a minute after I came in. Arrrgggghhh!!

 

Anyway, the store doesn't have an online venue but I offer myself to buy the pens for you and send them away in whatever mail carrier you prefer.

 

BTW all pens are delivered in this gorgeous box, not the cardboard one, so its another plus!

I've seen the Neon Yellow Safari online for $22 to $30-ish.

 

Pen Chalet has it for $22.

 

Goulet has it for $26.

 

Amazon has it for $28-$33.

 

No affiliation. Just throwing out a few other options for those who want a Neon Yellow Safari.

Thanks for pointing that out FayeV! Indeed, it is cheaper elsewhere. So too apparently for the Apple Green version.

The black thou, it's more expensive and more scarce on eBay http://www.ebay.com/...=item4184170b4f

After reading this thread, I guess it's better to buy -thou at premium rates from reputable sources than risking it on the net:

Previously on the Montblanc forum, I was told that Amazon affiliates (not Amazon) also sell fake pens from time to time, so beware!

Pen Chalet seems like a reputable online store also. I bought 3 Pelikan M205 pens recently from them and am very happy with the pens and their quick shipping/delivery. I can't imagine this online retailer selling a fake Lamy Safari. I'm also very comfortable ordering from Goulet Pen Company and have made several orders there this year.

 

I worry about making purchases on eBay, after having heard horror stories.

GPC is my go to if I want a pen or paper. I only used PC once and that was the Pilot Knight. But on PC there are some issues with the item's description. Like some pens that have gold plated nibs are labeled as having a gold nib. PC just for me seems like a retailer just wanting to sell products. GPC is almost a brick and mortar store, they know what they are selling. (Most of the time.)
